Sony is finally realizing that everyone is not made of money and has since decided to manufacture a cheaper Blu-Ray player for only $600 dollars rather than their previous $1000 dollar model
The BDP-S300 will have the exact same capabilities as its older brother the BDP-SP1 but, the BDP-S300 will cost 40% cheaper, at only $599. What a steal?? I think I'll hold off before spending my hard earned money on the next glorified beta-max.
Oh I forgot to mention this one important factor...The BDP-SP1 has the capability of playing CD's. That is something its older (more expensive) brother can't do.
I bet that just made you want to go out and buy one right now!
